It is meant for the 18-plus age group audience. It is not suitable for those who are uncomfortable with excessive violence.

It opens up to Haddi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) finding out the person behind the killing of his family members, especially the beloved Revathi Amma (Ila Arun).

Unlike many other films, transgender people’s characters in Haddi have them in a typical commercial revenge drama.

The epicentre of the bad side of Haddi is Pramod Alhawat, played by Anurag Kashyap and his henchman Inder (Saurabh Sachdeva), a transgender person.

Nawzuddin’s character, which is nicknamed after Haddi is the vertebrae, the biggest support system of the film. It holds everything in place from collapsing and turning disastrous.

Entertainment

Anurag is another important bone which elevates the movie from an ordinary to an above-average experience and saves it from becoming a disaster in the end.

Entertainment

It’s Nawazuddin’s show all the way. Anurag Kashyap makes a good impact as a villain. Rest is just another bloody revenge drama in the end.
